Subject: Prussic acid light frost

I have grain sorghum I want to graze. None of it has been combined. A week ago with I had a good frost on the leaves and grain head but it only got down to 32. Have a frost scheduled for 28 tomorrow.

So my question is does a frost always trigger the full release of prussic acid and then after a week you are safe? Or if you have a lighter frost in the 30s and then a hard frost comes can more prussic acid be released because the plant wasn't fully dead? Really need to get these animals on the field and start grazing it but of course dont want to risk death. This is with sheep using high tensile which works well so as long as they are not separated from each other. I am afraid if I put 1 or 2 on the other side of the fence they will just get back in with the flock and not really eat enough to get a true test to see if it safe.
